A Closer Look at the Sealy Posturepedic
To help take some of the confusion out of buying a new mattress, Cheap Mattress Reviews was founded to provide you with consumer reviews of all the leading mattresses available today.
The Sealy Posturepedic mattress is something of an institution in the mattress world, if only for the length of time that it’s been gracing the showroom floors around the US. Not only have Sealy themselves been making mattresses for 130 years, but they have been producing the Posturepedic model in various guises for 60 years!
During the Great Depression, Sealy not only managed to survive, but they introduced a new Button-Free Innerspring mattress model. This tells you something about the company and helps explain why they have risen to become the largest mattress manufacturer in the world. They sell a LOT of beds!
Even as times have changed and new models have been introduced – like the Embody range of memory foam and latex foam mattresses – the Sealy Posturepedic models still sit proudly as a key feature of the Sealy lines.
If you are looking to buy one of these what will you get for your investment? Firstly, being 60 years old, you probably guessed it’s a traditional innerspring model but it’s not quite that simple. There are 2 different types of systems used – one using the Posturepedic Titanium SS technology and the other using the Posturepedic Titanium DSx. The SS is a single-stage coil and the DSx is a dual-stage coil that offers even more support. The center third of the mattress, where the most support is necessary, is power-packed to further increase support there.
All mattresses feature LiftRight handles which may or may not go all the way around, making maintenance of the mattresses (turning, flipping, changing bed linen) much easier. They also feature a StayTight rubber foundation cover stops shifting of the mattress on its base.
Around the edges of Sealy Posturepedic mattresses you find the SitTight Edge System which reinforces the bed edges from the wear and tear they can experience; it also extends the sleeping surface right to the corners of the mattress.
The base of a Posturepedic is adjustable and uses a Dual Massage programmable position memory function and a wireless controller.
The top of the mattress comes down to your personal taste, as Sealy offer plush, firm and pillow-top finishes for you to choose from.
The mattresses are available in all the standard sizes you would expect, plus the California King size and a split Queen size (two 30″ x 80″ box springs.) They all come with a 10 year warranty.
Sealy Posturepedic prices vary depending on the options you choose, but the most basic Queen size mattress will be around $600. If you choose a Titanium DSx it will be around $900 for the mattress.
